Supraphon/GAD (Poland), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
A totally groovy set from the famous Czech ensemble of Vaclav Zahradnik – easily one of the greatest groups going on his scene at the time, and presented here in a very weird and wonderful special setting! The album's definitely what it says in the title – fairy tales in beat, done as ... read more CD

Pony PoindexterPony's Express (plus bonus track) ... CD
Epic (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $5.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by the mighty Pony Poindexter – a great reedman who made great waves on both sides of the Atlantic in the 50s and 60s! Pony first rose to fame in the band of Count Basie, but he's also got a pedigree that includes work in both New Orleans and San ... read more CD

Herb PomeroyLife Is A Many Splendored Gig ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $9.99
Incredibly hip big band work from trumpeter Herb Pomeroy – proof that the Boston influence in the 50s was a very good force in modern jazz! The group here is large, but the sound is often quite lean – done with an open focus on the strongest soloists in the group – players who ... read more CD

Richard Poole/Marilyn Crispell/Gary PeacockIn Motion ... CD
Intakt (Switzerland), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
A very moody trio recording from this hip combo – a group that features Marilyn Crispell on piano, Gary Peacock on bass, and Richard Poole on drums! Poole's a player we're not that familiar with, but he wins us over right away – and definitely earns the right to be in the heady company ... read more CD

Ferdinand Povel, Wim Overgaauw, Ruud Pronk, etcBeboppin ... CD
Limetree/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $9.99
Ferdinand Povel's one of those players we never seem to get enough of – a tenorist who may not be one of the bigger stars on the European scene, but one who always finds a way to serve up something special! Povel's got a nice edge in his horn at times – a mode that's always inside, but ... read more CD

Bud PowellBud Powell Trio ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1947/1953. New Copy ... $9.99
Seminal sounds from the great Bud Powell – recorded right at an early moment when the pianist was bursting into Birdland fame – working here with a key trio that features Curley Russell on bass and a young Max Roach on drums!

Bud PowellReturn of Bud Powell (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $14.99
Interesting sides from Bud Powell – billed on the front as "his first new recordings since 1958", which isn't really the case, since he did cut some work while living in Paris. And even more interesting, the liner notes describe Powell as "back on the US jazz scene, cured of ... read more CD

Seldon PowellMessin With Seldon Powell ... CD
Encounter/Essential, 1973. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
One of the only albums that sax genius Seldon Powell ever cut as a leader – and a tight smooth set of 70s funk tracks with a stone cold CTI or Kudu Records sound! The set was produced by Bernard Purdie –and features Purdie on drums, plus keyboards by Paul Griffin, trumpet by Jimmy ... read more CD

Seldon PowellSeldon Powell Plays ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $9.99
Great work from one of our favorite reedmen of the 50s! Seldon Powell is one of the all-time tenor greats, but on most of the recordings he made, he's always buried in the mix, or hidden in the credits behind the name of a famous bandleader. However, on this album, one of the few made under his ... read more CD

Seldon Powell Featuring Jimmy ClevelandSeldon Powell Sextet ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $9.99
An excellent sextet session by the great Seldon Powell – one of the late 20th century's best reed talents, but a player who's so often lost in larger bands – which is why it's especially nice to hear him grooving in a small combo set like this! The sound is incredibly soulful, at a ... read more CD

Marcus PrintupYoung Bloods ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
Sparkling work from trumpeter Marcus Printup – a player who can blow with great power when needed, but also hit these slinky, soulful moments too – a balance that only seems to get better and better with each new record! There's a bit of Freddie Hubbard in that approach, but Printup's ... read more CD

Sackville/Delmark, 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Really wonderful work from Don Pullen – solo material, and some of his most soulful sides of the 70s – done in this long-flowing style that's completely sublime! Pullen's really at his best in this format – working in a way that's very free, but never overindulgent or ... read more CD

Joe PumaEast Coast Jazz ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the best records ever from guitarist Joe Puma – a player who offered his talents as a sideman on many great sessions of the 50s, but who really shines here as a leader on his own! Puma's got a clean, clear, careful touch on the strings – one that reminds us a lot of Tal Farlow ... read more CD

Bernard Purdie (Pretty Purdie)Soul Is...Pretty Purdie ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99
A wild one! After the straight hard funk of some of his earlier recordings as a leader, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie breaks out here in a compelling album of soul jazz tracks done in a number of styles. The approach is sort of big studio funk – with some cuts that have a harder sound, ... read more CD

Quartetto ModernoEcco! ... CD
Schema (Italy), 1999. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the most beautiful jazz recordings we've heard in a long time! Italy's Quartetto Moderno is a vibes-led combo with a classic modal feel – similar to Bobby Hutcherson's pre-new thing years on Blue Note, or some of the early Roy Ayers & Jack Wilson recordings from LA. The sound is ... read more CD

Roost/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the few albums ever recorded as a leader by alto saxophonist Gene Quill – and a "with trombones" session, as you might guess from the title! Quill's tone is really wonderful overall – crisp, yet soulful – and with an amazingly fluid feel that reminds us of the ... read more CD
